Isaiah 40:31, “But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They willsoar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.”
“Don’t bail out before the breakthrough.”
Quitters never win – or at least never experience the best God has for them. When you want to quit, just wait. God is doing something that you only get to experience when you don’t quit.
We often think waiting is just a period of inactivity. But waiting while trusting in God is placing our faith in God’s strength and power regardless of the circumstances. And God can do far more in our “waiting” than we could do on our own.
In today’s verse, we learn four things that happen when we wait while trusting in God:
Don’t quit. Allow God to work through your wait and remember that he is doing something great.
Right now, where do you feel like quitting? Express your feelings to God and allow him to work within “your wait.” Then share with a trusted friend, to help encourage you to not bail out before the breakthrough.
Dear Lord, thank you for your strength when I am weak. Whenever I feel like quitting, I know I can count on your promise of new strength. I trust you in my waiting. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
